Crafty You

Crafty You Retreat

George & Ken of Crafts By Two invite YOU to a crafty weekend of learning, friends and fun at our Crafty You retreat!

Four days of classes, crafting, shopping, and fun! Meals? You only have to take care of yourself for lunch one day, we got you covered the rest of the time. YOU just have to relax and have fun!

What is a Crafty You retreat?

Our retreats are time to get away with friends old and new to craft, share ideas, learn new techniques and have a great time doing it!

Unlike ‘crops’ that you may have heard of, we’re not just scrapbooking. People have worked on cards, vinyl, iron-ons with our heat press, 3D designs, and yes scrapbooking too, but the crafts are up to YOU. Our classes have covered a range of topics and techniques; paper-crafting, multi-media, painting, designing with Inkscape, coloring techniques, and more!

On top of all that, you also have access to your hosts throughout the retreat for questions and help.
